Need to know how to tame frizzy hair so that it doesn’t wreak havoc on your style? We hear you. If you’ve been searching for how to make your hair less frizzy, keep reading for the ultimate frizz free routine.
WHAT CAUSES FRIZZY HAIR?
Hair that’s in the healthiest condition can absorb around 30% of its own weight in water from the atmosphere. But dry, coarse hair can soak up as much as 55% – almost double. Soaking up this moisture causes hair to swell and become uncontrollable, leading to that “poofy” appearance we all know too well.
Frizz is common in curly hair types, as their natural structure makes it harder for natural oils to make their way down the hair shaft, leaving hair much drier towards the ends. It’s also normal for hair to become frizzier as you get older. Over time your scalp oil production slows, leaving your hair much drier. This in turn leads to breakage and frizz, especially if your hair is already wavy or curly. Fortunately, you can defend you (and your hair) against frizz with the right haircare routine; read on for the frizz-fighting products you need in your life.
Step 1: Shampoo
First things first, ensure you choose the best shampoo for frizzy hair that is designed to tackle this issue. For smoother and better-behaved hair, try Pantene Nutrient Blends Miracle Moisture Boost with Rose Water Shampoo
that was created to soothe and hydrate dry, brittle hair. It is made with Rose water from the petals and buds of rosa gallica that thrives in the Middle East. Containing super moisturizing Vitamins B5, B3 and our Pro-V blend, it works to nourish hair, fight stubborn frizz, add elasticity and smoothen hair from root to tip.
Step 2: Conditioner or mask
To keep frizzy hair at bay, you should be using conditioner every time you wash your hair to replenish lost nutrients; just as you would use moisturizer to keep your skin’s dryness levels in check. The Pantene Miracle Moisture Boost Conditioner with Rose Water
is deeply nourishing, sealing every single hair fibre with an invisible moisture shield, to deliver superior smoothness for even the driest hair. Think softness that lasts until the next time you wash. 1-2 times a week, swap out your conditioner for a deep treatment mask for an even higher level of care.
Step 3: Leave-In Conditioner
Using a good leave-in conditioner for frizzy hair is an essential step in knowing how to control frizzy hair for all day smoothness. In hair that fundamentally lacks moisture, a leave in conditioner is a great way to keep your hair’s hydration levels up between washing and conditioning while also aiding in detangling. Pantene Gold Series Intense Hydrating Oil
adds nonstop shine and hydration to your coils immediately following and between washes.
Step 4: Heat Protection & Styling products
Heat protection is essential every time you style your hair, whatever your hair type. The excessively high temperatures from styling tools removes moisture from the hair, leaving it dry and, you guessed it, more prone to frizz. Pantene Thermal Heat Protect Spray
helps protect hair up to 450ºF. It is infused with argan oil to help keep hair smooth and shiny, while simultaneously strengthening your hair against breakage and shielding it from those high temperatures. Use it any time you use heat on your hair, whether that’s blow drying, straightening, curling or tonging.
Finally, a hairspray like Pantene’s Flexible hold Alcohol Free Hairspray
is a good finishing products to ensure no strays start to pop up. It is an ultra lightweight, alcohol free spray that provides a smooth, controlled finish for your style
